Thanks so much K!!!–Please visit her site, it’s terrific!! Have you ever wondered if anyone actually reads your blogs? Well K did and knew I have been having time with bouts of sickness from the many antibiotics I have been on. She felt compelled to ask me to email her. We emailed back and forth yesterday and she had some very good advice, which I greatly needed. Not only am I sick, but Anxiety is having a wonderful time poking and prodding me!!
I felt so much better after emailing back and forth and I am amazed and touched that we have such a wonderful blogging community! Blessings!! Thanks K!!


I am at peace

I am at peace

Not because I don’t care about the situation

But because I know it’s gonna be alright

Because I know someone greater than all

Because I know someone bigger than my problems

Because I have faith in my God

And even if things don’t go my way

I know His ways are better, no..they are the best for me.

So when you feel down and depressed

Turn to your God

Him alone has the answers to your questions

Him alone has the solutions to your problesms

He is your resting place

Drop your worries at His feet and leave the rest to Him

Trust and believe everything will be alright.

He loves you…


God bless.

Love truth

Truth…such a word with power. People say they want to know it but once known, is usually not well taken.

Yes, the truth hurts and believe me I’ve had to shock it many a times. But it is life, you need to shock a lot of things.

You made errors? Be ready to be reprimanded.

You lied? Be ready to regret it.

You stole? Be ready to account for it.

You failed a course? Be ready to spend some sleepless nights to catch up.

You didn’t listen? Be ready to bear the consequences.

I think it’s a grace to have people who are willing to hurt us with the truth than fool us with lies. Sometimes I look at my family and a few friends who are honest with me and I feel like beating them up cuz they are seriously hurting me with whatever they are saying as true. But with much more discernment and maturity today, I totally love them cuz at the end of the day, all they want is the best for me.

So be grateful and praise the heavens for those true friends and family members you have. They are going to be your pillar when you’ll need a helping hand/ support. Let them hit you hard with the truth and while you cry while listening to it, smile cuz you know you’ll be better soon.

Love the truth cuz only the truth sets us free. Stop with the lies cuz they will cause you pain. Hold on to your life and never let nothing come in your way. Turn to your God for guidance for He is the way, the truth and the life. Give Him your all and trust in His ways. Say the truth, hear the truth, love the truth and be the truth. So give yourself the challenge to start saying the truth if you haven’t started already. Let it hurt but be at ease you were honest instead of a liar. God bless.

77. We can find something to be grateful for everyday.

A total of 77 reasons to thank God. Isn’t this amazing? And I know there are people who think there is much more. I wouldn’t dispute that. I only say if you know more, why not add to the list?

I want to thank all the loving friends who took time to share what we should be thanking God for. A serious Christian, of course, uses every opportunity to evangelize (talk about God). Please, dear friends, if you have more things to thank God for, let’s grow our list; and let the world know we have a good God who has done and is doing so much for humanity.
